Story Map - Kiersten Faulkner, Historic Hawaii Foundation + Todd Tulchin, Cultural Surveys Hawai‘i

The Hawai‘i Capital Historic District Story Map tour incorporates public art, architecture, history and technology sharing information about this special historic neighborhood listed on the Hawai‘i State Register of Historic Places.

88 Block Walks - Adele Balderston

Named for the 88 blocks which comprise the Kaka'ako neighborhood of Honolulu, this ongoing series of walking tours explores themes of gentrification, displacement, urbanization and generational change within Kakaʻako’s cultural, historical and physical landscape. By providing greater public access to archival materials and other diverse histories of the neighborhood, 88 Block Walks aims to remove the lens through which landowners and developers present Kaka‘ako’s narrative to the public and invite the community to create their own. 

Ala Wai Centennial - Sean Connelly

ALA WAI CENTENNIAL (2021/28 to 2121/28) organizes around the idea that local people have a critical and necessary role in shaping the infrastructure of Hawai‘i, not just private developers, corporations, and public agencies. Positioned as a one-hundred year long socially engaged initiative, this worldwide exhibition on the Ala Wai Canal addresses what is urgently lacking across the stakeholders of Waikīkī: a coordinated framework for the ahupua‘a recovery of Hawai‘i’s most urbanized place.

Paradigm Now: The Albizia Project - Joey Valenti

The Albizia Project was founded to develop innovative uses for the prolific invasive albizia tree and support native ecosystem restoration of the Hawaiian Islands.
